After the initial flurry of SATC's arrival in the movie theatre, there was a book published that detailed all of the clothing worn by the ladies and the actual sets. I bought the book for my oldest daughter for Christmas. However, after oogling her copy, I bought my own and I came to love this Alessandro Dell'Acqua dress:
Of course, having limited time, I did a very cursory search on Style.com and the internet for it because I didn't remember seeing it in the movie.
Wonders of wonders...last Saturday night not only did I see it in the movie but I got front:
and back shots of it
I've had the fabrics I wanted to use and a pattern picked out to make an interpretation of this dress since I got the book:
Suffice it to say that this dress has moved somewhere near the top of my spring/summer sewing list! I think it will make an excellent work dress because it has enough individuality in it to be me and enough structure to work in a corporate environment.
So tell me...has a movie inspired you to make or want to make a garment? I know that there were quite a few garments "interpreted" from "The Devil Wears Prada" but have any other movie...old or new...inspired your own version of a garment? And if so, what garment and what movie?
This my question of the day so talk to me!
